NFP: Manning should deny the Colts

Joe Fortenbaugh thinks Peyton Manning isn’t worth the $28 million roster bonus due March 8, 2012 but also doesn’t deserve to have the divorce carried out in public:

From the looks of things, Irsay loves to talk. He wants to be on camera. He wants to see his name in the headlines. Most will tell you that he’s one hell of a twitter follow.

But he dropped the ball on this one.

Rather than take this battle public and create a divide in the city of Indianapolis, why not handle the matter behind closed doors? Has Manning ever given anyone a reason to think he’d act in an unprofessional manner and make this thing ugly?

From his standpoint, Fortenbaugh thinks Manning should tell the Colts to hit the road.
